Evolved from working with head injured groups at Headway and those attempting to return to work, this is a rich, comprehensive and photocopiable workbook for professionals, carers and clients. It contains over 140 cognitive rehabilitation exercises - tailored for memory, thinking skills, executive functions, awareness and insight, and emotional adjustment. It provides more than 40 information sheets on key problem areas, with questions for the reader, designed to educate and stimulate thinking and discussion. It is suitable for both individuals and groups. It includes questionnaires for clients to complete with or without help and quizzes to evaluate and encourage information retention. Primarily for professionals where exercises or handout sheets can be photocopied and used therapeutically, The Brain Injury Workbook can also be used by carers or family members to provide stimulating activities for a head-injured person. In addition, the head-injured person themselves can work through the book on their own.
Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists is designed for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) treating adults with cognitive-communicative impairments following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Cognitive impairments are one of the cardinal features of TBI, affecting communication and activities of daily living. This book integrates scientific information into a user friendly and practical application tool for practicing SLPs and students in training to become SLPs. Section I contains chapters that serve as background for understanding the treatment of TBI. Included are chapters addressing mechanisms of injury, neuropathology, recovery patterns, and applicable classification and outcome measures following TBI. An overview of cognitive-communicative impairments is also included, as are sections devoted to common compounding and concomitant conditions that impact individuals with TBI and their rehabilitation. Section I also contains chapters describing the rehabilitation process following TBI from the broader landscape of interdisciplinary and patient-centered rehabilitation and specific to cognitive rehabilitation treatment (CRT) for adults with TBI. Section II contains chapters devoted to describing CRT in the areas of attention and information processing speed impairments, memory, executive function and awareness, and social communication. Chapters in section II focus on treatment approaches that have an established base, described in a clinically useable format. Each chapter includes a summary of the research evidence, recommended candidates, and background on a specific treatment approach. They also include a section devoted to 'Treatment in Action,' designed to explain applicable steps, procedures, and needed materials for implementation of a specific approach. Charts, figures, tables, and appendices are also included to facilitate the use of a specific approach. Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury can serve as a supplemental textbook for graduate courses on neurologic communication disorders. It is also a valuable resource for students during clinical practicum with adults with TBI. This book is also a professional resource that summarizes information in a way that is applicable to practicing SLPs who work with adults with TBI and their families.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex condition for which limited research exists. The recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have resulted in numerous service members returning home after sustaining TBI, and healthcare providers scrambling to find resources on how to treat them. This toolkit is a comprehensive source of inventories and therapy options for treating service members with mild TBI. All aspects of mild TBI are covered, including vestibular disorders, vision impairment, balance issues, posttraumatic headache, temporomandibular dysfunction, cognition, and fitness, among others. With easy-to-follow treatment options and evaluation instruments, this toolkit is a one-stop resource for clinicians and therapists working with patients with mild TBI.
